What Our Clients Say
I highly recommend Digital Age Lawyers for any law case.
Thank you so much Katherine Hawes and the team.
Digital Age Lawyers have an office in Richmond and are passionate about making wills that work.
I have seen Katherine speak and have been involved with her assisting a business who was being bullied on-line. She acted immediately and the owners were grateful and relieved. A First Class down-to-earth solicitor who genuinely cares.
Had a fabulous meeting with a lawyer yesterday! Yes, a LAWYER!! Tears of laughter whilst discussing some pretty important but boring stuff. Law needn’t be scary, boring or confusing if you have the right lawyer. Thank you Katherine Hawes. I’m looking forward to working with you.
